SciELO
The Scientific Digital Library On-line - SciELO is an electronic library masking a specific collection of Brazilian scientific journals. There's horseback driving and wildlife watching within the Pantanal, kayaking flooded forests in the Amazon, ascending rocky cliff tops to panoramic views, whale watching off the coast, surfing stellar breaks off palm-fringed beaches and snorkeling crystal-clear rivers or coastal reefs - all are part of the great Brazilian experience.

The states and the federal district could also be grouped into areas: Northern , Northeast , Central-West , Southeast and Southern The Luiz Gastão Bittencourt Brazilian areas are merely geographical, not political or administrative divisions, and they don't have any specific form of government.

Brazil's attractions prolong from frozen-in-time colonial cities to otherworldly landscapes of pink-rock canyons, thundering waterfalls and coral-fringed tropical islands. Then there's Brazil's biodiversity: legendary in scope, its numerous ecosystems boast the greatest collection of plant and animal species found wherever on earth.
